The Campaign

The Longmeadow Adult Community Center Fund

WHY GIVE...

Longmeadow is a wonderful place to live. Our schools, local organizations, programs and services support a great quality of life. However, like elsewhere in the country, our population is aging. The voters in the Town of Longmeadow generously voted to appropriate $14 million to construct the new Longmeadow Adult Community Center at Greenwood Park to primarily serve the needs of our growing older adult population through programs, activities and vital services delivered by the Council on Aging.

A contribution to LAACF’s Campaign for the Longmeadow Adult Community Center will ensure that, once built, the new Center will be a state-of-the-art facility that is beautifully furnished, equipped and landscaped, offers interesting programs, lively social and recreational activities, and enhanced delivery of vital social services that will enhance the quality of life for older adults in our community well into the future.

Please join us in investing in YOUR future, and the quality of life for your parents, grandparents, children, friends and neighbors who will benefit in so many ways from the Longmeadow Adult Community Center!

What will your contribution support?

  • Educational programs to ensure life-long learning.
  • Heath, wellness and nutritional programs and classes.
  • Recreational spaces and equipment, including a gymnasium, indoor walking track, workout room with fitness equipment, Pickleball Courts, with proximity to Greenwood Pool.
  • A café where friends and family can meet over lunch or coffee.
  • Activities designed to attract increased participation of older residents, especially those who may be socially isolated at home.
  • Enhanced delivery of social services to meet the needs of an aging population.
  • A vibrant center of community life in Longmeadow – focused on older adults but open to the entire community.

The Longmeadow Adult Community Center, like our schools and many organizations in town, is an asset that contributes to a vibrant community and quality of life that makes Longmeadow a great place to live, raise a family, retire and live out one’s remaining years. Our donors recognize this and have chosen to invest in our community and our seniors through the Longmeadow Adult Community Center Fund (LACCF)!

Contributions to LACCF come from many individuals and businesses, and through corporate sponsorships and private and corporate foundation grants.

Bequests & Estate Plan Gifts: A bequest is a gift from your estate - a transfer of cash, securities or other property made through your estate plans. You can make a bequest to the Longmeadow Adult Community Center Fund (LACCF) by including language in your will or living trust leaving a portion of your estate to the Fund by designating the LACCF as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy.

A bequest from your estate will help sustain the Longmeadow Adult Community Center in years to come. Some of the advantages of creating a bequest include:

  • A bequest costs nothing now, yet gives you the satisfaction of knowing you have provided for the Fund - and the Longmeadow Adult Community Center it supports - in the future.
  • You retain control of and use of your assets during your lifetime.
  • You may modify your bequest if your circumstances change.
  • Gifts to LACCF from your estate are exempt from federal estate taxes.
  • By leaving a bequest to the Campaign for the Longmeadow Adult Community Center, you will be able to receive thanks and recognition on the Wall of Honor for your generous support during your lifetime.
  • A bequest to the LACCF can be made for a specific amount, for a percentage of your estate, or for all or a portion of what is left after you have made bequests to your family. To make a gift to the LACCF from your estate, you must sign a new will or living trust instrument, add a codicil to your present will, or make an amendment to your present trust instrument.

    Alternatively, you can designate the LACCF/Longmeadow Council on Aging as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. To do so, contact the retirement plan administrator or life insurance company and complete the appropriate beneficiary designation form.
